Another day, another celebrity death rumor. This time the unfortunate victim is Eddie Murphy who “died” earlier today in a snowboarding accident.
According to Global Associated News, a bogus website that generates stories such as these, “The actor and novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Eddie Murphy lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.
Eddie Murphy was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death.”
Murphy joins a long list of celebrities who have died snowboarding at the same exact place in Switzerland. Fortunately for those celebrities and Murphy, their deaths have been greatly exaggerated … as in, made up!
